PHILADELPHIA, April 11, 2013 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Pro-life leaders are issuing a clarion call to grassroots activists around the country to help break the media blackout surrounding the trial of abortionist Kermit Gosnell by joining in a “Tweetfest” tomorrow (Friday).Read more here.

In addition to asking pro-lifers to send out Tweets about the trial using the hashtag #Gosnell, organizers of the event are also asking them to contact their local media outlets to ask them why they’re not covering the trial.
Despite a continuous stream of dramatic, and often gruesome testimony coming out of the Pennsylvania courtroom where Gosnell is currently facing eight charges of murder, none of the major broadcast networks have covered the trial.
“If this was puppies that Gosnell was killing the media would be all over it,” Andy Moore, the director of AbortionWiki, one of the organizers of the “Tweetfest,” told LifeSiteNews.com in a telephone interview.
“However, if we can create enough of a groundswell of people talking about it, the media is going to have to respond," he said. "They’re going to have no other option but to respond with their version of what they think is going on.”
Other organizers of the Tweetfest include Bryan Kemper of Stand True Ministries & Priests for Life and Troy Newman of Operation Rescue.
